Our take on the Pivothead MemVac Pro

by Woody Sherman

The Pivothead MemVac Pro is designed to help you preserve your hard-won footage and pictures while keeping your Pivothead wearable recording system ready for more action. You can even change your glasses' capture and resolution settings from its control interface. Content can be quickly and securely transferred from the glasses to two USB flash drive ports (flash drives not included).

The unit works with Pivothead's AC and DC chargers (both included with purchase), and can also be powered by the Pivothead Refuel 4000 battery.

Overview: The Pivothead Mem-Vac Pro is a device for downloading content from your Pivothead Video Recording Eyewear to a USB Flash Drive. The Mem-Vac can vacuum (copy, then delete) all of the files from the glasses quickly and easily, freeing up space in the memory for the next recording session. In addition, the device provides a 5V 1A DC output for charging the glasses.

Power Requirements: The Mem-Vac Pro can operate on AC or DC power, and includes an AC adapter and DC charger. This allows you to transfer files at the home or office, and in the field. It is compatible with the Refuel Power 4000 and the Power Pro Refuel 8000, so you can use it when you're not near a power source. A 2-port DC charger is included to charge two pairs of glasses simultaneously.

USB Ports: There are three Type A USB ports: Ports 1 and 2 can be used for connecting the Pivothead eyewear, while Port 3 is for plugging in a USB Flash Drive for storing your media files. You can transfer files from two Pivothead units simultaneously.

LCD Screen: The unit features a two-line LCD screen to display the menu.

Controls: The Mem-Vac Pro has a 4-button control panel. The arrow buttons allow you to maneuver up and down in the menu, while the O and X buttons let you make your menu selections or exit from the menu.

Memory Monitor: The unit can calculate and display the amount of remaining memory in any of the Pivothead glasses or in a connected USB flash drive.

Firmware Updates: Occasionally, the firmware of the Mem-Vac Pro needs to be updated. When new firmware becomes available, you can copy the new firmware onto a USB Flash Drive and connect the drive to the Mem-Vac Pro. The menu provides an option for updating the firmware.
